Welcome to the No Stop Truck Stop. It's a little bit of home on the road!

Phineas Flynn

"Road Trip" is the 129th episode of Phineas and Ferb. It is the second segment of the series' 75th produced episode, and also notably the last episode to air before the premiere of Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension.

Synopsis

Road Trip - Screenshot 3

The Flynn-Fletcher family are in their RV on their way home, and Candace complains that she couldn't call her friends because of the "spotty connection". She tells Phineas and Ferb that she's glad they didn't build anything during the trip, but they didn't pay attention because they were zoning out after Candace said that they didn't get to go to a truck stop diner. As Candace decides to sleep on a couch, Phineas tells Ferb that he knows what they are going to do and notices an inflatable Perry, mistaking it for the real Perry. The real Perry slips through a secret entrance and gets a briefing from Major Monogram who mentions that Doofenshmirtz is driving a rig not far from his location and tells Perry to investigate him. He expresses how he's envious of Perry for going on a trip. Perry then goes under the RV to the engine and uses his laptop to hack into the GPS to reroute the RV.

Meanwhile, Lawrence decides to use a CB radio to talk to truckers and goes as "Cheeky Monkey". He uses truck slang to talk to truckers and shows Linda how he learned to speak truck slang in "Truck Driver Hits, 1975 to 1975". He gets one of the truckers with the nickname of "Misfortune" which turns out to be Dr. Doofenshmirtz, who is having a hard time talking in truck slang. While Doofenshmirtz is talking to Lawrence, Perry jumps across to Doofenshmirtz's truck and after seeing Perry he cuts him off. After talking to Doofenshmirtz, Linda tells Lawrence that he scored some big man points.

Doofenshmirtz tells Perry not to attack him since he is driving and presses a button to tie Perry up with a seat-belt. He explains to Perry that all his Inators need a formula that scientists call "Boom Juice" for the self-destruct sequence. He manages to find a cheap price and has to drive it back home, and decides to talk to Perry about truck driving tales.

Phineas and Ferb's diner above their RV.

Meanwhile, Phineas and Ferb are getting their seat-belts on and gathering their tools as their chair went up to the roof of the RV, and Candace goes sleep-walking to go bust Phineas and Ferb. Lawrence and Linda are listening to the Truck Driver Hits on the radio about some truck driver saving Christmas, and sees Candace sleep-walking. Linda says, "Honey, Candace is sleep-busting again", and sends her back to the couch and continues to listen the radio about a group of truckers taking down some corrupt cops. At the same time, Phineas and Ferb receive a trip delivery for the diner food and wonders if they are too young to order this and Phineas states that the age is not an issue there.

Doofenshmirtz is still talking about truck driving tales while Perry escapes by getting a nickel from the seat to toss to a side-mirror to reflect the sun and uses a magnifying glass to burn the seat-belt and then tackles Doofenshmirtz to take control of the rig. However, Doofenshmirtz fights back and uses his Hitch-A-Ride-Inator to connect the Flynn-Fletcher RV so that they can drive his rig for him. After they battle each other, Lawrence notices Doofenshmirtz as a pharmacist who is putting his face in the windshield and comments that Americans are like big children.

As Candace wakes up and sees her brothers aren't seen in the RV and notices the music, she goes to the roof of the RV and enters in the "No Stop Truck Stop". While Candace is nagging Phineas and Ferb about doing this during the last days of their trip, she unintentionally blooms into the role of a waitress after she hears some customers with their orders.

Meanwhile, Doofenshmirtz and Perry are fighting at the top of the rig. Doofenshmirtz uses a lid to throw at Perry, but it bounces off a sign and hits him and falls off than it bumps his rig which affected the RV. It shook the laptop to disconnect the GPS, which tells Lawrence to turn left to a corn field. Lawrence does so, thinking that it is a shortcut. Perry notices they are heading toward Cactus Gorge, jumps towards the Hitch-A-Ride-Inator, and turns his fedora into a buzz-saw to cut the Inator to separate it from Doofenshmirtz's rig as it heads toward the gorge that Doofenshmirtz also jumps out from. Perry quickly fixes the GPS and the laptop to reroute the RV to prevent it from plunging into Cactus Gorge. Doofenshmirtz runs toward his rig and sees it falling in Cactus Gorge and it explodes.

The shock-wave of the explosion causes Candace to fall off the escalator to the roof of the RV and falls to the seat that goes up and quickly grabs Phineas and Ferb talking to customers about truckers banding together to save Christmas. Linda goes to check on the kids and sees them sitting together, and Candace tells her to go to the roof to see the diner that Phineas and Ferb built. At the same time, the farmer and his wife are at the overpass talking about their dreams and the wife comments that she wants to own a truck stop diner. The Flynn-Fletcher RV passes the overpass that the diner stops at and was right behind them. Linda and Candace goes to the roof of the RV and sees nothing on it. Lawrence joins them and they gave him a stare when he realized that no one is driving the RV.

After having his pants burned by the explosion Doofenshmirtz states that he needs a new pair of pants and he says that it couldn't possible get any worse, prompting many flaming cacti to fall on top of him.

Last verse of Little Bit of Home on the Road.

Running Gags

The "Too Young" Line

(Phineas marks an order form when the Truck Driver states an item.)

Truck Driver: Delivery. Hey aren't you two a little young to be receiving a seasoned grill, 300 pounds of coffee, 200 pounds of fatback, four tons of lumber and assorted wheat, rye and pumpernickel breads?
Phineas: Think about it. Age really isn't the issue here, right?

Truck Driver: You got a point kid.
Lawrence: Why were there's a truck driving pharmacist and pressing his face up against the windshield? That's what I love about you Americans. You're like big, fun children.
Linda: Yes, yes we are.


Ferb's Line

None.

What'cha doin'?

None.

Perry's entrance to his lair

Perry inflates a replacement Perry, goes to back of RV and the wall flips into secret compartment for his briefing.

Hey, Where's Perry?

Phineas: Hey, there's Perry!

Mistaking Doofenshmirtz for a pharmacist

Lawrence: Oh! My word, there's a truck-driving pharmacist and he's pressing his face up against his windshield.


Memorable Quotes

Candace: Are you even listening to me? Phineas: Well, we were at first, but then you got all echoey and far away.
Linda: You know that you just scored some big man points in my book for that.

Lawrence: Woohoo!

Linda: You just lost them again.
Dr. Doofenshmirtz: And then I say to him "That's not a penguin, it's a throw-pillow". So then he throws it at me. Turns out that it was a penguin, and its beak went right into my mouth and I'm like "Eww, their beak is their nose!" True story.
Dr. Doofenshmirtz: (Perry honks truck's horn) Perry the Platypus, I can't fight you and drive at the same time!
Candace: Hash-browns or fruit?

Customer: Hash browns!
Candace: You're havin' fruit!

Customer: Aww...
Customer: Do the eggs southwest have bacon in them?

Candace: Ferb, bacon in the southwest?
Ferb gives Candace a thumbs up
Candace: There's bacon.
Customer: Is the bacon good?
Candace: It's bacon.
Customer: Okay then, I'll take a... (pauses)

Candace: Not getting any younger here.
Dr. Doofenshmirtz: Yep, gonna need some new pants. Ah, I fail to see how this day could get any worse. Looks up and stares briefly at camera. Flaming cactus. Flaming cactus falls on him. Aw! Yeah, that oughta do it.
Linda: How do you know how to use a CB radio?

Lawrence: Simple, I studied this. Hands Linda an 8-track casette case.
Linda: (Reading case) "Truck Drivin' Hits: 1975-1975."

Lawrence: Yes, yes, yes, handle it carefully, dear.
Lawrence: Oh, go on, play track 3! It's the one where a group of truckers take down a corrupt police force using only their trucks and their saucy colloquialisms!
Nagging Wife: It's always about you! I have dreams, too, you know. I've always wanted to own a little truck stop diner.

Phineas and Ferb's truck stop diner stops on a flyover, behind the wife and the husband.
Husband: There you go!

Nagging Wife: How do you do that?
Candace: Phineas! My last peaceful hours of vacation and you build this!

Man: More coffee, Miss?
Candace: This is unbelievable! When Mom sees this one, she's gonna completely flip!
Man: Miss, I'd like the breakfast special.

Candace: Honestly, you can close your eyes for one second around you boys.

Errors

  • When Perry pulls the cord from the inflatable Perry, it didn't deflate even if it had a hole.
  • Before Phineas and Ferb get their delivery, Doofenshmirtz's truck disappears but in the next scene its back.
  • When Linda checks on Phineas, Ferb, and Candace, a small part of her right hand is missing.
  • When Doofenshmirtz hits the lid, it bounced off a sign. When the lid disconnected the GPS cable, which is connected with the laptop, the plug is a little bit damaged. However, when Perry comes and fixes the GPS cable, it's connected to the plug.
  • When Candace fell down the stairs, there wasn't anyone next to the customer that asked Candace for his pies. When Candace was lifted up to the diner, there was someone next to him.
  • As Candace was about to walk while sleeping the window was colored black instead of transparent.
  • When Candace goes up to grab Phineas and Ferb from the diner and comes back down before Linda checks on them, there is no ladder. Then, when Candace tells Linda to go look, the ladder is now there.

Continuity

Allusions

  • Convoy - The culture of truck drivers and CB radio was a popular icon in pop culture in the mid-1970s, perhaps most popularized by the 1975 novelty single Convoy by "C.W. McCall" (Bill Fries).
  • Teddy Bear - *A song on the 8-track had the lyrics "...and one little orphan boy looked up at me with tears in his eyes said, 'Mr. trucker man, you done saved Christmas.'" This is similar in style to the 1976 Red Sovine song Teddy Bear in which a trucker, via CB radio, befriends a paraplegic boy whose trucker father had recently died.
  • Garfield - Perry attaches himself to the window of Doofenshmirtz's truck with suction cups, mimicking the popular "Stuck on You" Garfield suction-cup plush dolls.
  • Wait 'til Your Father Gets Home - In an episode of "Wait 'till Your Father Gets Home", it was a running gag that the refrigerator door would open and spill the food every time the RV took a left turn, similar to how Candace described it at the beginning of the episode.
  • MACK - Dr. Doofenshmirtz comments on how the hood ornament on his truck is a little dog. A bulldog is the hood ornament for most MACK trucks.
  • "Rabbit Hood" - The scene, right down to the musical sting that plays when Candace looks down at herself in an apron and yells, "Oh, what am I doing!?", is reminiscent of the exact moment the Sheriff of Nottingham realizes that Bugs Bunny duped him. In both cases it takes quite a while before the victim of the joke catches on.
  • The RV driving through a corn field may be a reference to An Extremely Goofy Movie when Max, PJ, and Bobby's RV was doing that.
  • Wages of Fear - Doofenshmirtz driving a truck full of highly volatile explosive liquid across a long distance is very similar to the movie Wages of Fear, in which men must deliver trucks carrying nitroglycerin a long distance so that it can be used to put out burning oil wells.
  • The Brady Bunch - When Candace is taking an order from a customer and asks if he wants hash browns or fruit, he orders hash browns. Instead, she tells him that he is having fruit. This could be a reference to the Brady Bunch (One fruit cup, two fruit cups)
  • Raiders of the Lost Ark - The scene where Perry climbs on the roof of Doofenshmirtz's truck and then swings down and kicks him, punches him in the shoulder, and then throws him though the windshield is almost exactly like events of the truck chase scene in the Indiana Jones movie "Raiders of the Lost Ark." A soundalike version of the "Raiders' March" is heard in the background.
  • Speed - Perry is hanging onto the undercarriage of the RV and looking at the rear tires.
  • League of Legends - Doofenshmirtz's trucker name is "Misfortune" but Lawrence apparently mistakes it as "Miss Fortune" referring to the Champion of the popular MOBA game League of Legends.
